Young people from North Korea will attend a UN leadership program in the southwestern city of Gwangju starting this week for about a fortnight.
The city on Monday said that the Youth Leadership Program will take place at Honam University from Thursday until early September. It is being organized by the United National Sport Development and Peace.
"Three North Koreans will be among 34 youngsters from 19 Asian nations taking part in the program," said Gwangju Mayor Kang Un-tae, chairperson of the Organizing Committee for the 2015 Gwangju Summer Universiade. "The Unification Ministry approved the visit by four North Koreans, including one chaperone."
YLP is a sports education program tasked with nurturing future leaders from developing countries.
